    Thanks for the heads up about this collection (the companion site is as visually engaging as Mary Ruefle’s website but with an education bent, like Srikanth Reddy’s companion for Voyager–really neat stuff).

    If you’re just getting into the form, here are some collections you might like to check out (or some that might get overlooked otherwise):

    Voyager – Srikanth Reddy
    Look – Solmaz Sharif (she also is an erasure theorist, as can be found in a special edition of The Volta)
    Sand Opera – Philip Metres

    There are a bunch more (a collection for every occasion, or just about) but those are the most recent or most moving ones I’ve come across lately. Good luck with the form and keep fighting the good fight.
